Hi my name is Shayne I’m fundraising after being selected to attend the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019. Between now and then I’ll be undertaking lots of sponsored activities from chocolate bingo to hikes and bag packs
The World Scout Jamboree is the largest camping event of its kind organised by the Scout Movement. It is an international event bringing together as many as 50,000 Scouts and leaders from more than 200 countries. I need to raise a lot of money as the money I pay to attend also contributes towards supporting a Scout from a less fortunate nation being able to attend also. Any money raised above what is needed will be forwarded to help other Scouts that like me are going to be working hard in the coming months to raise money to attend this once in a lifetime experience.
The Jamboree is going to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia United States between July and August 2019. It is an awesome opportunity to come together with other young people from around the world promoting mutual understanding of differing cultures whilst developing leadership and outdoor skills all at one of the most advanced camping bases in the world.
I’ve been a Scout for 9 years. There is a long tradition of scouting in my family with many of my family members participating (and volunteering many hours) over the years. It is a true honour to have been selected and to be able to represent both my own and the scouting families to which I belong. My aim now is to fundraise as much of the money as I can to not only make those who introduced me to the Scouting family proud, including in memory of those no longer with us, but also endeavour to support others who are aiming to be there to.
